For Educators

By using broadcasting tools and techniques to deliver educational programs to students who cannot gather in classrooms, or by producing a television program that keeps viewers rooted in our shared culture, Articulate has embraced the limitations of this moment to serve others living through it.

Our new Articulate educator guides are designed for use in both physical and virtual high school classrooms. Use the search below to find guides by subject matter or artistic medium. Each guide includes step-by-step instructions for lesson preparation and delivery, as well as optional extensions utilizing even more Articulate artist profiles. New plans will be uploaded throughout January and February, so check back often.
